Yesterday, it came out that Notre Dame would be suspending Everett Golson for the Fall 2013 Term. This means that Golson, the former starting quarterback for the Fighting Irish, will miss the upcoming football season, but will have a chance to return to the school if he desires, after serving the suspension.
Today, Everett announced that he was suspended for “poor academic judgment”, but stated that his intentions are to return to Notre Dame:
